A panel discussion titled Beyond Search: Social and Personal Ways of Finding Information. The panelists are Neil Hunt of Netflix, David Porter of Live365, Tom Conrad of Pandora, Kevin Rose of Digg, and Joshua Schachter of del.icio.us. BayCHI's Rashmi Sinha is the moderator.
Exciting developments in social search and personalization help users find information: recommendations based on personal tastes, social trends, tags, ratings, popularity, and friends tastes. These methods go beyond the classic search paradigm of relevance and flat lists of results, resulting in different user experience challenges.
